  1. Technology Transfer of Scanning Magnetic Field Imaging

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    High resolution magnetic mapping is a technique that has shown great value in the forensic evaluation of magnetic audio recording tapes. The use of single element raster scan systems has shown that the technique has promise in diagnosing many other systems where internal currents or magnetized inclusions generate external measurable fields. NIST has developed a 256 channel MR array sensor that ha ...

  2. First Steps in Transferring the Policy Machine Technology: Policy Machine Architecture and Functional Specification (PMAFS)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IAI proposes to first develop the functional specification and architecture for the Policy Machine that can be deployed on a local machine as well as a networked platform such as LAN, web services, clouds etc. The policy machine at its core is a meta-data (attribute) based access control engine which utilized policy-based rules to allow or dis-allow use of resources. The attributes may belong to e ...

  3. Multi-posed Virtual Family Models

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A simulation platform to develop multi-posed models for micro-Doppler sensing is proposed. CAD model based human subject models, and hardware accelerated bio-electromagnetic modeling will be developed to understand EM interaction with human subject models. Since each organ is defined via a set of vertex coordinates, various morphing algorithm can be implemented. Consequently, the proposed models ( ...

  4. A Toolkit for Scalable and Automatic Security Analysis Using Security Metrics

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Our society has become increasingly dependent on the reliability and proper functioning of a vast number of interconnected information systems. To improve the security of these systems, it is necessary to measure the amount of security provided by different systems and configuration since one cannot improve what cannot be measured. In this proposal, Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) and its consul ...

  5. Mark III Enhancement Program

    SBC: KEYW-Wave Sciences Joint Venture            Topic: N/A

    The NIST array was the first public-domain digital array hardware design. It introduced the (then) novel idea of live capture and streaming of raw array microphone audio over Ethernet for use by one or more computers on a network. The design has been improved over the years to bring it to the Mark III version 2 (2005). The present system is an excellent tool for research into microphone arrays, au ...

  6. Dynamic Light Scattering Instrumentation Using Field Programmable Gate Array-based Digital Signal Processing

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An existing low-cost FPGA-based processing platform will be demonstrated with fiber-coupling to single-photon detectors, to perform photon-arrival time stamping with

  7. High Efficiency, Large-area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A stable, well characterized InGaAs materials growth and photodetector fabrication process will be used to fabricate matched photodiodes optimized for balanced homodyne detection. The 1-mm-diameter p-i-n photodetectors will be manufactured back-illuminated with a 5-micron absorber, allowing residual light to reflect off the front-side metal to make a double pass through the active layer. Ultra-hig ...

  8. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...

  9. Man Portable Hand Held Survey Device

    SBC: TAMPA MICROWAVE            Topic: SOCOM09004

    Advanced signal processing techniques based on existing Tampa Microwave signal intelligence receiver hardware, University of South Florida cellular recognition software and Athena Group FPGA products will be utilized to demonstrate a wide bandwidth, fast scan manportable cellular scanning device. BENEFITS: Power consumption, size, stare bandwidth and scan speed for hand held communications interce ...

  10. Compact, Efficient Motor Controllers with Active Noise Cancellation

    SBC: Signal Systems Corporation            Topic: SOCOM09005

    SSC will use a novel rafting concept that reduces the area authority fo the Active Noise Cancellation solution. This approach is patented and demonstrated in the Smart Skins Demonstration (S2D) program. Mature algorithms provide a low risk path to a Phase I demonstration and a Phase II insertion BENEFITS: The rafting concept enables flexibiity in adapting any COTS controller to severe space cons ...
